I am unclear on the point if a Judgr has no children can he actually understand the plight and distress of a parent being kept from their child. However, with that said a father who was deemed to be of sound character and upheld all aspects of ordinal custody order asked for more time with his child and the mother of the child violated almost every aspect of the original order and even admitted on the stand to lying to welfare ( fraud) and on her financial statement was also deemed to be of sound character and the father actually lost time with his child. This was 4 years after the courts had told father when child was if school age week on and week off would be appropriate and the father asks for that and not only did he not receive it from wells but time he already had was Reduced. Judge gave a manipulating admitted fraud more time and control over the child to continue to deny access to the father and try to further push the father out of the child's day to day life. He repeatedly asked father on the stand I understand she did not abide by court order to keep you informed but couldn't you have just gone and done it yourself!! Wow way to uphold court orders and equal rights for all Judge

Much like the comments below, I am an out of county attorney and was not sure what to expect. He is fantastic, very even handed, knows his stuff and seems to really care. There is a tendency in family law to be boggled down by the drama and he was the opposite of that, he genuinely worked with the parties to resolve the matter. I say this without having prevailed on every aspect of my matter and in disagreement with parts of his decision.


Comment #: MD4445
This Judge altered transcripts, pretended to believe their was a federal law requiring one to update their address yearly, showed obvious bias to plaintiffs' attorney, did not recuse himself in cases pled by friends and associates of the Court, showed obvious disdain toward pro se litigant, allowed his Orders to be altered, ratified exceptions without allowing answers, interfered with Appeals at COSA level, struck motions without notification, the list of abuses of the legal system but this Judge is overwhelming.

As an out of county attorney I was not sure what to expect. Within 10 minutes it was apparent that Judge Wells a great draw105. He is fair, knowledgeable, pleasant and flexible. Not only did he do an outstanding job in my matter, but I watched him handle a variety of other other cases with skill and compassion.

Excellent judge. I wasn't sure what to expect in my custody case. Judge Wells listened and explained why he ruled as he did. A very fair man.

Extremely knowledgeable about the law, this judge treats all who appear before him with respect, dignity, and patience. He has an approachable, down to earth manner that leaves even the losing side feeling as though he was thoughtful and fair. He regularly takes the time to point out to litigants that their respective attorneys worked hard and advocated zealously, and he is flexible and accommodating when necessary.

An outstanding trial judge. Long may he serve. Can we clone him and ship him to Prince George County?

A fantastic judge. Excellent judicial temperament, phenomenal understanding of the law, and extremely even-handed in handing out rulings. Overall a pleasure to try cases before. A true asset to the bench in general, and to Calvert County specifically.

An asset to the bench. One of the finest judicial temperaments -- kind, flexible, even-handed -- combined with real intelligence. It is a delight to try cases in front of him.
